That is Carnation and Transistor. They are the Nerdbots that I got for my birthday last year. They’re made from reclaimed items and are quite awesome, if I do say so myself. Perfect decor for a house owned by two electrical and computer engineers.
My mom got me Carnation, choosing her because in the description on the site it said that she liked Golden Girls reruns and collecting highlighters. While I don’t collect highlighters, I probably own way more markers, colored pencils, pastels, and drawing pens than the average person who never took an art class after they were 12.
She’s actually rather tall. Since I haven’t got around to hanging the shelf that I intended to put her on, she hangs out on the cedar chest in the living room.
My sister got me Transistor because he has a jet pack. That’s really hard to argue with.
Since his shelf hasn’t been hung either, he sits on top of our cd shelf. That also makes it difficult to take pictures of him, because the shelf is tall and I am decidedly not.
